Foreign Policy: Cuban Missile Crisis (redux)

Foreign Policy has engaged in the “Tweeting the Cuban missile crisis” project. It sounds interesting and promising, in the sense that we may learn something new, with an updated perspective.

It is actually quite interesting to find out that Jackie was skiing while rockets were in Havana. But of course, what it makes it worthwhile as project is the provided international historical context.

Favorite quote: History is “lived forward” but “understood backward”, by Soren Kierkegaard.
